When reversing, the camera 1 on the boot lid transmits a view of the surroundings to the rear of the vehicle to the multimedia display 2 accompanied by two clearance gauges 3 and 4 (mobile and fixed).
This system is initially used with the aid of several gauges (mobile for trajectory and fixed for distance). When the red zone is reached, use the bumper image to stop accurately.
3 moving guide line:
This is shown in blue on screen 2. It indicates the vehicle trajectory according to the position of the steering wheel.
Fixed gauge 4
The fixed clearance gauge comprises coloured markers A, B and C, indicating the distance behind the vehicle:
- A (red) approximately 30 centimetres from the vehicle;
- B (yellow) approximately 70 centimetres from the vehicle;
- C (green) approximately 150 centimetres from the vehicle.
This gauge remains fixed and indicates the vehicle trajectory if the wheels are in line with the vehicle.
Make sure that the camera is not obscured (by dirt, mud, snow, condensation etc.).
Activating/deactivating the reversing camera
From the multimedia display 2, select “Menu”, “Settings”, “Parking distance control” then “Rear camera settings”. Activate or deactivate the reversing camera and confirm your choice by selecting “End”.
You can also adjust the camera image settings (brightness, contrast, etc.)
The screen shows a reverse image.
The frames are a representation projected onto flat ground; this information must not be taken into account when superimposed on a vertical object or an object on the ground.
Objects which appear on the edge of the screen may be deformed.
In very bright light (snow, vehicle in sunshine etc.), the camera vision may be adversely affected.
If the boot is open or poorly closed, the message “Boot open” appears and the camera display disappears.
This function is an additional aid. It cannot, therefore, under any circumstances replace the vigilance or the responsibility of the driver.
The driver should always be ready for sudden incidents while driving: always ensure that there are no small, narrow moving obstacles (such as a child, animal, pushchair, bicycle, stone, post, etc.) in the blind spot when manoeuvring.
